THE MISSION

The Propulsion Test Engineer will be part of a team that is performing development and verification tests on liquid rocket engines and their subsystems on a dedicated test bench and in close communication with the developing engineers. In addition, the person takes care of test preparation and maintenance on the test bench. As the test bench is not yet operative, he/she will work on design tasks, the definition of safe operational procedures and the coordination of the build-up process together with the team. In the mid-term future, involvement in the development of further test stands and launch pads is likely.

More specifically, you will:

  • Help designing and building a test bench for liquid rocket engine development testing
  • Implement test schedules on the test bench in coordination with the development engineers
  • Conduct test campaigns together with propulsion development engineers
  • Own certain safety topics like safety procedures, policies and contingency plans
  • Ensure safe operations by monitoring compliance to safety protocols and possible deviations
  • Take care of test preparations and maintenance of the test bench
